Ice Cream – For 2- And 4-Footed Fans COOL/From Pg. 3 with almond milk. “It’s very popular when college is in session,” she said. It was even a stop for comedian Amy Schumer, who ordered a few sweet treats when she was in the city in June for her sold-out performance at Foothills. And the Golden Guernsey has something else you won’t find anywhere else in the county – a shop cat, Butters, 15, who makes it her mission to greet every customer who comes through. “She won’t eat the ice cream, but if you sit outside, she’ll waltz over like she’s your best friend,” she said. “If there’s a couple at the picnic table, she’ll sit in between them!” But Butters isn’t the only

pet who gets in on the icecream action. At the Cooperstown Penguin Ice Cream, you can order a “Scooby Sundae” for your four-legged friend. “It’s vanilla ice cream with dog bones on it,” said owner Valerie Hitt. Located right next door to the Susquehanna Animal Shelter in Route 28 in Hartwick Seminary (about a quarter-mile north of Dreams Park, Hitt has been known to take a batch over to the dogs on a hot day. But don’t worry – humans have plenty of op-

tions too. “We specialize in custom ice cream,” she said. “We take a vanilla or chocolate base and mix in the ingredients you order, so it’s made exactly as you want it.” It’s all done in a special machine that combines the hard ice cream with the ingredients – as many as you want, from fresh fruit to candy bars – so that the finished product has a soft-serve consistency, rather than just piling the ingredients on top. “We can make root-beer ice cream,” she said. “We crush up the root-beer barrels really fine, and then mix them right in.” And it can lead to some wild combinations. “Someone did pistachio with cotton Please See COOL, A8

am obsessed with pork belly. OBSESSED. But it’s not an ingredient you find much around here. So when I get a craving, I turn to the pork belly buns at Alex’s in Cooperstown. Served in soft steamed buns with just a brush of Hoisin sauce and a few crisp pickles, scattered with scallions like a warm autumn day, it is the heavenly combination of sweet and savory. And with three to a plate, it may look like an appetizer, but it fills you up like a meal. If you do have room left, order their house made maple crème brulee for dessert.

ocated in the heart of downtown Oneonta, you will be hard pressed to find a time when The Latte Lounge is not bustling with activity. Looking like it was plucked right out of NYC with an aesthetic that blends antique and industrial, The Latte is a must-stop in Oneontans. Whether you are looking for a regular cup of Joe, an iced chai or latte, or even a refreshing fruit smoothie, they have you covered. Open at 6 a.m., The Latte can kick-start your day with traditional breakfast platters like bacon and eggs, French toast, omelets and pancakes. If bagels are more your

speed, try tasty Brooklyn bagels (made in house) with a multitude of spreads (personal recommendation: cinnamon raisin, lightly toasted with honey nut spread). Lunch time brings out the soup and sandwich menu, with personal favorites like the Lizard Fitness Sandwich (turkey, avocado, egg whites, egg and cheese), salmon burger or the chicken curry salad. If you’re looking for a coffee shop open late on weekends, The Latte’s doors are open until 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Seating is at the vintage kitchen tables and couches.

f American Indian Chief Schenevus was still roaming the Charlotte Valley in southeastern Otsego County, he would certainly be proud of the restaurant that bears his name. I usually hit “the Chief” early in the morning for eggs and bacon on a homemade hard roll. The roll is fresh baked, the eggs are fresh, with high quality bacon cooked just right – and service is prompt, which is vital for the morning commuter. The bakery section is known to locals as “the sweets” with homemade pastries, puffs and cakes. Menu is well balanced with traditional American fare, with a focus on burgers and wraps, and dinner specials nightly. (93 Main St, Schenevus. 607-638-9488) DENNIS ENRIGHT Advertising Consultant


ot a yen for fried squid? When I do, Bella Michaels in Oneonta’s Sixth Ward leaps to mind. The fried calamari appetizer ($11), with pasta (linguine preferred here) with a house salad to start

– it makes a great dinner. Of course, that’s not all. Actually, “all” is the operative word. Bella Michaels is one of Oneonta’s few complete Italian restaurants (Stella Luna and Toscana would have to be on that list, too). It’s surprising there aren’t more, given the City of the Hills’ strong Italian heritage. (Joseph Fiorvan-

ti’s “History of Italians in Oneonta” vividly recounts the influx of railroad workers to Oneonta from Carbondale, Pa., in the 19-teens; they lived in boxcars for months while setting aside enough to rent modest apartments so their families could follow.) As such, Bella Michaels offers all the staples, from

Summer Dreams B-7 at buddhist meditation center

Guru’s Visit, Open House Mark Retreat House’s 10th Year By LIBBY CUDMORE COOPERSTOWN


hen Matthew Zalichin came to the end of his nine-year mediation retreat series in Nepal, he began a conversation with his teacher’s nephew, Phakchok Rinpoche. “I had worked with him on projects, and I told him not to hesitate to ask if he needed anything,” he said. As it turned out, Rinpoche, a teacher of the Nyingma lineage and chief lineage holder of the Taklung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, had been given a former horse farm just outside of Cooperstown and was hoping to turn it into a retreat center

for meditation and Buddhist practice. Now, 10 years later, Zalichin still teaches at the Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Meditation Center, which will kick off a summer series with a weekend of classes and an open house, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, July 15. “People are curious about the place,” he said. “It’s not every day that a Tibetan Buddhist temple opens, but it’s a nice atmosphere for everyone.” At 7 p.m. Friday, July 13, Rinpoche will give a talk on “Happiness and the Mind” and at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17, Tulku Mingmar will give a free class on the Buddhist Path, with as many as 50 of Rinpoche’s former Tibetan monks and their families in attendance. “We’re hoping they’ll

said Friedman. “We built the showers out of wood that was lying around, and had port-a-johns for people to use.” But even that was part of the practice. “Yogi jobs, such as sweeping the temple or cleaning the bathroom, help ground us,” said Zalichin. “It’s a reminder that no matter how high up you are, the dishes have to be done.” These days, the barn has

new meditation pods, a shop carrying Tibetan goods, and a redesigned space for meditation, complete with altars and artwork. Doris Motta, one of the retreat center’s managers, was drawn to the practice just after it opened through a Himalayan craft fair. “I was going through a difficult time, I was angry and resentful, and I thought meditation would help,” she Please See RETREAT, Pg. 8

Guru Will Be At Center For Celebration RETREAT/From Pg. 7 said. “I saw the classes at the craft fair, and I started to attend. Meditation relieves stress and anger.” “Rinpoche wants meditation taught outside of Buddhism,” said Zalichin. “But there always has to be some discussion of ethics.” “If mindfulness is used to hurt people, it’s not a useful practice,” said Friedman. “The more you settle your mind, the less likely you are to be drawn to negative practices.” And just as Motta found

the practice enlightening, others began to come too, until a congregation grew. “People come from all over the world for the retreats,” she said. Though individual classes are offered, there are also

week-long retreats, where practitioners camp, meditate and dine together. “That’s when the teachings become not theoretical,” said Friedman. “If you think someone has done something to upset you, the inclination might be to sneer or snap. But it’s the opposite at a retreat. It’s a turn the other cheek practice.” To celebrate 10 years of the center, Zalichin is putting forth the theme of compassion. “The heart of mindfulness is compassion,” he said. “All our practices are based in compassion, especially in these times.” And although renovations have been done, there are more in store, including painting the barn red – the traditional color of a temple – adding windows and putting gold tops on the roof. “We’re starting massive renovations to turn it into a temple,” said Motta.
